Republican Budget Pushes Privatization of Social Security

The Republican budget proposal will apparently include plans for privatizing social security. Why aren't the Democrats highlighting this difference with the GOP? It could only help them. This is an example of how Obama's strategy falls short, although he has finally gotten more aggressive & creative in the last few weeks.

I find it ironic that after months of Republican lies about how health care reform would kill Medicare (scaring the Hell out of Seniors), we now have the Republicans actually wanting to fundamentally change Social Security. And the Democrats aren't doing anything to highlight that difference and take the opportunity to finally get into the drivers seat and control the narrative on a major policy issue.
